absolutely - I intended the summary - also given it would take a 
couple of weeks to get Director's approvals, we could make last fixes

as part of the public LC process, so I'm not expecting problems in 
this area.

Great idea -- there was wording to this effect in your LC document, 
and it would be good to include something similar in your editors'
